Gudenådalen river valley passes through Favrskov near Ulstrup just as Granslev Ådal river valley, which was created during the ice age and is clearly characterised by this period in its scenery.

When visiting the beautiful countryside in Favrskov, you will stumble upon protected burial mounds dating back to the Stone Age, walk along pretty brooks and through the protected Alling Ådal river valley with moors and lakes which are home to many different species of animals and plants.

There are woodlands, pastures and vast open spaces for agriculture – not to mention a romantic baroque castle dating back from the 12th century, Clausholm Slot.

So, whether you are on foot, on your bike or in your car, you are never far from a creek or a forest – nor from countless other great experiences in Favrskov.

When Passing Through Favrskov

Be sure no to miss ...

More than 20 fish species live in the rushing Gudenåen, so there is something for everyone and chances are good that you will get a big one on the hook. 

In a hidden clearing in the beautiful landscape around Gudenåen near Vejerslev, you will see Høj Stene, one of the largest Iron Age burial monuments in Northern Europe. You can walk along lovely brooks and through the protected Alling Ådal river valley and its moors and lakes, which are home to a rich selection of animal and plant species. There are wood-lands and meadows and vast farmlands, and of course the romantic baroque castle dating back to the 12th century, Clausholm Slot.
